funky Posted April 29, 2008 Share Posted April 29, 2008 I didn't expect anything from the second album, infact didn't even know about it untill recently... and Mikael didn't release anything for some time, last was Piggys Tapir Boogie which was something different then the ussual but still a nice track, so after the silence the album just popped out. i hesitated to listen or not to listen to the samples and i said let it surprise me. and it did, but in a bad way. first id like to say PROCS + GLITCH = WTF?!?!?! Mikael man u had me worried u went down with the rest, to crappy waters of production. never ever put glitch on organic sound, thats blastphemy glitch works fine with industrial and mechanical sounds and thats it. Tracklist: 01. Procscircles 02. Astro Circus Freaks 03. All Around Us 04. OK 05. The Lonely Land of Tada 06. No Free Space For Tunas 07. Bouncing In The Ballroom 08. Gobbledegook 09. The Little Beatles 10. The Thin Rustle of Weeds 01. Procscircles - ussualy u gets good impressions of a first track either it be a compilation or an album cause well its the first thing u listen. so u can get a nice impression of it. but this one doesnt have it at all. and it scared me a lot, i mean 5 minutes past and nothing interesting happend. and till the end of the track well u just keep wondering when will it end. to put it in a light expression this one doesnt have a soul or vibe in it. FILLER!!! one of ur worst tracks Mikael 3/10 02. Astro Circus Freaks - yay we have a pulse something is happening. here u get an impression someone made this, althou not the bouncy, playful, wacky side of Procs more the darker side and after the first track this is heaven. not something i would call dancefloor material but nice for home listening or well mental journeys the second part of the track gets a nice build up and u can even boogy a bit. can't say filler but nothing special either, just a decent Procs track 6/10 03. All Around Us - now thats a really nice intro, totally builds u up for some mayham. the melody reminded me of old goa sounds, now this is more like it we stepped into Procs at it should be. still a bit darker but way more rythm and dynamics. the bassline is somewhat Para Halu like, ohhhhhhhhh man what a blast off at 4:00! the atmosphere is great and the vibe just right. i keep getting the felling im listening to Para Halu, maybe cause this one is so fucking hypnotic. all in all a very good track, nice one Mikael not bad in the hypnotic department at all 7.5/10 04. OK - Procs original and more then OK, no words for this one just let it play 8/10 05. The Lonely Land of Tada - lets go see how is it in Tada i would pretty much say demented but no way lonely, it remides me of Big Fat Large Snoring Lamas...totally enjoy the relentless beating of it, and maybe the only track in which i can digest the use of GLITCH. at 3:50 u can get the impression that its not that lonely in Tada, more like a big party with all kinds of demented entities and phantasms. pure dancefloor material and nice peace of complexity as a track 8/10 06. No Free Space For Tunas - OMG this is the shit!!! Piggys Tapir Boogie part 2!!! so groovy so playful so jazzy...and the piano improvisations...want more of this!!! Mikael hats off man 9/10 07. Bouncing In The Ballroom - o yeah, after the genious mushroom filled tunas we go into a bouncy bouncy mode this is why i enjoy listening Procs, so damn danceable. Mushrooms + Procs = dance like a monkey in the forest...this one is the new Gelatom Megafon, o man cant wait to hear this one in a forest. and yeah no GLITCH to break the groove, just pure stomping from start to end. the ending of the track is one of the best so far ive heard from Mikael...genious 9/10 08. Gobbledegook - this one is a total surprise and well when will they stop hmmm i consider this as a Procs Full-ON not like Input Flip (Procs Remix) but actuall fullon in a Procs fashion and man i wish that fullon is nearly this good. i totally dig the bassline 8/10 09. The Little Beatles - I cant stop smiling and be in an euphorical mood, bassline is wonderful and the percussion play also. and heres the well known Procs groove with all the right elements. the perfect track for the body and mind...danceable, mental, funny, evolving. o yeah this one takes u right there with the beatles to boogy...to much joy in this one 9/10 10. The Thin Rustle of Weeds - OMFG!!! pwned...i want mushrooms for this one, it hurts me to listen to it just like this. this is beyond words. the melancholy the shroomness the fell the jazz!!! 9.5/10 EPIC!!! What to say at the end, its better then i though it was. i don't even know can i compare it to Stuck In The Oven With Me nor shoud i but it doesnt matter this is a great album with some really creative and wonder track in it. the only drawback id say it have is the use of glitch and well the first track which is IMO a really bad one. all in all a must have release for anyone who knows what psychedelic music is about...so thank u Mikael for making quality psychedelia Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
